The link between the Shaving Horse above that is in the Museum of Appalachia Museum in Norris Tennessee, and the same tool in the Swedish Cabin is that the tool below was cleverly re-created in the last 30 years by the folks who interpret the history of this cabin, from an illustration found in a book titled A Museum of Early American Tools, by Eric Sloane.

The tool at the top is presented at the Museum of Appalachia as genuine.
